In 1881, Tennessee native George L. Porter (1854-1928) wed Roxie Brooks (1863-1927), daughter of early Hill County official Cincinattus Ney Brooks. George was a merchant in nearby Peoria (6 mi. W) and later served as an officer in Sturgis National and Citizens National banks in Hillsboro. The Porters were community leaders and active members of Hillsboro's First Baptist Church. In 1901, Roxie's brother O.D. Brooks constructed this Queen Anne style house, selling it to the couple that same year. It features a wrapped porch, Tuscan columns, decorative shingling, and a massed plan with hipped roof and cross gables. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 2004
